The Bee posse's weekly update of the latest in area conditions, bargains, etc.
Course What you need to know
Castle Oaks Course conditions great; restaurant is only open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., which limits your options when you throw in a five-hour weekend round
Haggin Oaks MacKenzie nice, especially greens, which are running State Fair smooth/fast
Teal Bend In its best shape of the year, arguably; pace of play always seems to be brisk
Timber Creek Bunkers excellent, greens consistent, pace good, marshal on course, pro shop staff courteous good experience, all in all; neighboring Sierra Pines good, too
WildHawk Greens and fairways outstanding; rough tough but fair; ongoing bunker renovation continues to cause the occasional headache
Aerified last week: Winchester
